UK Tier 1 Entrepreneur Visa
While most people dream of visiting the UK, here's your chance to not just visit but to live and work there. If you are a non-European and have £200,000 in access, then Tier 1 Entrepreneur Visa is for you. The United Kingdom invites entrepreneurs who wish to set up and run a business in their country.
This visa type is largely popular among the Indian entrepreneurs and investors. It not just allows them to own a business in the UK, but also lets them live there with their family for 3 years and 4 months and another 2 years of extended period.
Moreover, the Tier 1 Entrepreneur Visa holders can apply for settlement (also referred to as "indefinite leave to remain") after a period of 5 years stay in the UK. That's not all. There are more benefits in store for successful applicants.
You can check eligibility with Y-Axis to know if you qualify and what are the benefits you can avail. Some common benefits are however mentioned below.
